The concept of The Mommy Spa was developed over the course of my own pregnancy.  As the pregnancy progressed I became more and more uncomfortable.  In pursuit of a safe massage for my delicate condition, I found that very few massage therapists were actually trained in prenatal contraindications, proper positioning or alternative techniques. What I received at the local spa was nothing more than lotion application. They asked about my aches and pain but did nothing to address them.  I started researching the subject in the hopes it would lead me to a therapist in the area.  It didn't,  but it did lead me to a local school and a workshop. I had discovered a new passion and a perfect niche.
